When did this happen?
I'm on Python-Ideas, Python-Dev, and I get announcements of new issues on the bug tracker, and I don't recall ever seeing this feature discussed.
Oddly I barely recall it either, even though according to PEP 487 it was posted five times to python-dev, and I approved it. It's a long time ago though (two retirements, for me :-).
I think that __set_name__ was greatly expected as one way to mitigate `DRY` with descriptors it was completely uncontroversial - unlike __init_subclass__ on the same PEP. I for one had used it a lot of times, and I am a big fan of __set_name__
